Explore non-standard measurement as a way of learning how and why people developed standards for measuring things. For ages 6 to 9.

If you wanted to know how far you could jump, you might jump from one place to another and then measure the distance with a ruler or tape measure. BUT what did people use before tape measures? How did they measure distances, lengths, or widths? This lesson invites children to explore non-standard measurement as a way of learning how and why people developed standards for measuring things. For ages 6 - 9 years.
